By now, you should be well aware of the importance of using a VPN, especially if you live in one of the so-called “14 Eyes” countries.
Today, we’re going to put Firefox in the spotlight. Here are some of the best free VPNs for Firefox that you should consider.
Hotspot Shield has a secure free version extension and a premium version, as well as an impressive security package.
The VPN plugin fully encrypts connections, and it includes features such as split tunnels, ad blockers, trackers, cookies, malware, and WebRTC leaks.
Hotspot Shield’s VPN browser extension for Firefox is available as a free and premium version to install.
The free version is limited to one location (US), but it is still an encrypted connection. Encryption is done through Hotspot Shield’s internal Hydra VPN.
Hotspot Shield is very fast, whether you are in the US or far away. Locally, we experienced only a 10% speed loss, compared to 17% for connections from the UK.
The paid version of the extension has access to nine server locations, which is better compared to other Firefox VPNs, but still a relatively small number.
Windscribe is a reliable freemium VPN for Firefox, a service that offers almost all the security and privacy features of its premium version. Best of all, a strict no-logging policy means that your data is not collected. This also makes its “Five Eyes” jurisdiction in Canada less of an issue.
The free plan limit list includes only 10 server locations and 10 GB of data per month. Meanwhile, premium subscribers get unlimited bandwidth and a choice of more than 480 servers in over 60 countries. However, you get unlimited simultaneous connections, which is a double-edged sword that can cause data caps to expire quickly.
This VPN is compatible with a wide range of popular devices. In addition, you can install it directly onto Firefox, Chrome, Edge and even routers. No matter what platform you choose, the speed of enabling WireGuard is impressive.
Customers can customize Windscribe to meet their needs using a unique build plan model. It allows users to choose the VPN location they need and enjoy an ultra-low subscription fee starting at $1.00 per month.
This is a Mozilla VPN that includes powerful features, and thanks to its strong VPN encryption, Zenmate VPN is great for protecting your data when using public Wi-Fi connections known to harbor hackers and other cybercriminals.
For streaming or regular browsing, ZenMate offers the best connection speeds if the server with the content is physically close to your location. When connecting to a remote server, you may observe slow connection times or buffering.
This VPN is easy to download, install and set up with just your email and password. it takes a few seconds to get started and is a good choice for first time VPN users because of its simple control layout.

Hola VPN is one of the best free VPNs for Firefox. It has been the choice of many people using Mozilla for 5 years. The plugin allows you to access restricted websites in your country or on your Wi-Fi network.
Since Hola offers a free service, there are over 30 countries and over 500 servers to choose from.
Hide.me is a free VPN service that provides servers for its users worldwide. It exists in 72 different locations around the world, as it has more than 1800 servers. With its free version, users can connect to servers in Germany, the Netherlands, the United States and Canada. However, its Firefox proxy extension does not allow users to choose server locations as it alternates between available locations.
When it comes to unlocking streaming sites, Hide.me does a good job in this regard. Depending on the server you connect to, you will have access to the streaming libraries available in that country/region. In addition, censorship can be bypassed through its Firefox proxy extension.
With Hide.me, you can use multiple protocols, including OpenVPN, Softether, IKEv2/IPSec, WireGuard, and SOCKS. in addition, you have a reliable 256-bit encryption algorithm to protect your Internet connection. However, proxy extensions do not encrypt your connection.
Hide.me has an effective no-logging policy to provide users with leak protection and is based in Malaysia. Its Firefox proxy extension is free for everyone; you don’t need to create an account to use it. Finally, you can use it on any device that has Firefox installed.
